Shake Hands With Profit
Pretty amazing AMAZING film that features the Tide, sort of a jazz rock fusion (before the word ever existed probably) band that had a little bit of a cult status back in the day. Anyways, their struggles are compared to, yes, modern business, and it's a bit simplistic, but the business model works for a film like this. I can imagine showing it to a bunch of doped up high school kids "Yeah man, groovy! They should have made more profits!" Features the best ending. Jim Stringer leaves the band at the end of the film for a full time job. That job was a musician for Centron, who made this film! Oh way to break up a good thing Centron! This is a MUST SEE! Great stuff.
